Toronto restaurants that opened this week: March 9-15


Aside from the fact that mask mandates will soon lift at restaurants and other venues in the province, it’s been a slow news week for restaurants in the city.

The biggest openings this week include popular chain restaurant Momofuku, which will be reopening one of its locations this week. You can also add another restaurant to your Toronto brunch list as Alma+Gil opened up their location this month.

Here’s what opened in Toronto during the week of March 9-15.
